Of all the cars I've owned, the '19 is actually my fav to drive in heavy traffic. And unless your Camry has a heated steering wheel, well, that thing sells itself.

Seriously man, get rid of the Camry.
I do agree the clutch is butter smooth...

Wrong (said politely). My '19 is a daily driver: two car seats in the back, trunk is big enough for two small bikes (one with training wheels) & all the stuff you need for a week-long trip. I've had eight bags of mulch in the trunk with room to spare, grocery runs, buying large things at Target, my giant dog fits inside comfortably, etc. etc. - it's an easy car to live with daily. UNLESS you need to put adults in the back - then the '01 is roomier, believe it or not. But get rid of the Camry. Seriously.

yeah I am the same way now. I take the B out 1-2x a week and usually in the morning during the summer while it is still cool. The good thing is I do not see alot of them around town anymore, maybe 1 or 2, but that is it. People are oblivious to another person's car these days for sure. Thought about it a Coyote swap later down the line? But if it isn't broke no sense changing anything.

B03103 Here's my .02, feel free to ignore it completely.

Sell Camry & buy cheep under 4k P.O.S beater to drive around town (think old corolla).

Then do all the mods you ever dreamed of to your 2001 Bullitt including super charger. (I assume its not already SC)

OR

Buy 2019


Nice Car, Let me know if you want to see your rims.

Been bumped 3 times by people with no insurance and no speaky de english. The 01 only comes out between 6 and 8 am on a Sunday morning then is safely back in the garage.

Did I mention there is bumper to bumper traffic here and driving a stick can be brutal sometimes, even for my 31 year old legs....

Maybe sell the 01 and the camry, by a cheaper cash beater to get around town and have the 19 as your car payment, safely tucked away in the garage?

My .02! Good luck!

I can understand that, but it's not forever and if you want it, well, you only live once.

bullit4404 Camrys are great cars, but they are like a great fridge, they do their job day in and day out, but there's no emotional attachment. Maybe you can find an older Toyota or Honda that would do the job and allow your Bullit habit to be fed. Should be some nice rust free cars in your neck of the desert.

This seems to make the most sense. Sell the Camry (unless you are underwater on it) and use the proceeds and buy a cheap beater. At that point you can either keep or sell the 01 as suits your situation.

I had my 01 at the gym back in 2010 and some JA door swiped the passenger side since it was windy. slight paint scrape and I was able to touch it up pretty good, but when I confronted the owner about it he said "I didn't realize I did that" and that was after i showed him a picture of his SUV next to mine. Point is, people have no respect out here either. I drive the B on the weekends or on Fridays to work. I don't leave it anywhere because of what I mentioned above. Thanks for your comments.
